Due to all the delays and cancellations going on in light of the tragic ferry accident, it comes as no surprise that EXO's mini-album is next to be postponed for an uncertain period of time.

Through the boys' official home page, SM Entertainment said, "After learning of the sinking ship incident that happened on April 16, all of SM Entertainment's artists, executives, and SM family are struck with grief and sympathy.


After discussing the schedule for EXO's music release, album release, and future promotions in the country, SM Entertainment decided to tentatively delay the release of mini-album 'Overdose,' which was planned for April 21."


The agency also said, "We ask for understanding from the fans who'd been awaiting the music as this decision resulted from our desire for the safe return of the passengers and condolences for the victims.  We thank the fans for their great interest in new mini-album 'Overdose' and will later on announce the release date once it's been confirmed."

I am actually really thankful for SM and EXO for pushing the album back. Honestly, the reason why you guys are wanting the album to come out is because you guys aren't affected by the ferry. However, as someone who personally knows someone on the ferry - though I don't know her personally, our family are friends and I have seen her once in a while - I am glad they're doing this. Though death is inevitable, it's only been four days. FOUR DAYS. Yes, there is a slim chance that anybody is alive but we all have a thing called hope. Be thoughtful for Korea right now. How could you guys worry about whether or not your album is going to get delayed when people around ages 17 and 18 are currently stuck under water?

For the EXO fans that are being thoughtful and respecting SM's decision, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart. These days, I've been hating on all Exotics because I believed that you were all narrow minded but seeing many twitter posts made me re-think this opinion.

However, to the EXO fans that don't care at all, I want you to re-evaluate your life. Honestly, an album is more important than a life? True, them doing this isn't going to help the ferry at all but it's a thing called respect. How could EXO push out an album when so many people in Korea are mourning right now? Just because your parents are "strict on you" doesn't give you a right to be a selfish bitch. You all say you're tired of waiting but families have been waiting for days without knowing whether or not their son or daughter is coming back. In Korea, most of the families only ;have one son or daughter meaning that they might lose their only child in this accident. Be more considerate about the families right now before you open your mouth and spew out stupidity.
